Delicious Creamy Onion Dip

by Rebekahcooked up on January 25, 2012

You may have had a mix version of caramelized onion dip before. Let me tell you – it’s worth the effort to make this one from scratch.

Of course, I say that about many things. But I really mean it this time. There was nary a crackerful leftover after our little football shindig.

Also, I realize that this is not my best photo ever. It’s a bummer – overall I think this has been a pretty darn good week. But it’s really hard to shoot something very bright in a tall bowl! I should have messed around with it more until I had a better shot. Oh well. Sometimes you have to go do other things!

This recipe is from Alton Brown, and well, if it ain’t broke…

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups finely diced white or yellow onions
  • 1/4 tsp. coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. coarse salt

 

Heat the olive oil in a sautee pan over medium heat, and then add the diced onions and the salt.

Cook them for what will seem like a long time – probably 15-20 minutes – until they caramelize. Remove them from the heat and wait for them to cool. Mix together the other ingredients in the meantime, and add the onions when they are no longer super hot. And you’re done! That was easy.

Homemade Soft Pretzels

One of my favorite things about writing this blog is discovering how much better homemade versions of some things are. Case in point: I can think of a few others. Pizza. Nachos. Muffins. Okay, maybe I can think of a lot of others. I’m definitely not saying I don’t ever like to enjoy a meal […]

Game Day (and every day) Coleslaw

Let’s be honest: it doesn’t need to be the Super Bowl or any other football game for you to enjoy some cooling coleslaw to balance out those spicy chicken wings. I actually have a habit of stealing and/or trading for other people’s coleslaw in the presence of fried food. I get the coleslaw, they get […]

Perfect Buffalo Wings

What a crazy busy time it is. We have many projects going at the Hubbard house right now. As you may have seen on Twitter or Instagram, we bottled our first-ever batch of beer this weekend. We are also working on building some furniture. And we made a natural wood stain that kind of looked […]
